Kildare get the better of Longford Ladies

Kildare booked their place in the next round with another win, this time it finished 2-11 to 2-5 against Longford.

Longford wrap-up their Lidl ladies league division 3B campaign away to Wexford next Sunday.

Elsewhere, Lisa Cafferky starred against Galway on Sunday as Mayo made it through to the Lidl Ladies National Football League Division 1 semi-finals.

Mayo’s 6-6 to 2-8 victory ensured another last four slot for the Green and Red, who fell to Dublin at the penultimate hurdle in last year’s competition.

This fixture was put back a week after last Sunday’s postponement, but Michael Moyles’ side took their chance with Lisa Cafferky and Sinéad Walsh helping themselves to two goals each at Tuam Stadium.

Ciara Whyte and Sinéad Cafferky also found the Galway net while Mairéad Seoighe and Kate Slevin hit back for a Galway side who trailed by 3-3 to 1-3 at half-time and couldn’t gain a foothold in the second half.

Kerry also advanced to the next stage after a 1-13 to 0-9 Division 2A victory over Clare at a windswept Doonbeg. Louise Ní Mhuircheartaigh came up with the crucial goal in the first half and Kerry held their nerve against the breeze after half-time.

In Division 2B, Lauren McConville and Aimee Mackin were the goal-scorers in Armagh’s 2-13 to 0-10 success against Cavan at the Athletic Grounds. That win also means Armagh move on to the final four.

Down lead the way in Division 3A but they were held to a 3-6 to 3-6 draw away to Sligo in the IT Sligo grounds.
